If you want to spruce up a medium length hair cut then cutting some long layers or short choppy layers will add texture, volume, and frame your face. Another great way to change up medium length hairstyles is with bangs. Both bangs and layers are best when chosen with hair texture, face shape, and lifestyle in mind. Lets take a look at some of the trendiest medium length haircuts with beautiful bangs and bold layers.
Short and Long Layers with Side-Swept Bangs
If you want to add volume and dimension to a medium length haircut that you are bored with, then try adding a bunch of layers at different lengths. For this haircut you should ask for face framing layers that cascade down your face. A good place for the first layer is between your nose and chin.
This haircut looks particularly chic with side-swept bangs because they continue framing your face and act as just an additional shorter layer that gives your hair a fresh new look.
A Wavy Medium Length Haircut with Bangs
Waves aren’t just for those with super-long locks; they are perfect for medium length hair. Relaxed, beach-style waves give your hair a lot of volume, and it’s a cute playful look that can be easy to maintain and style. How you get the waves are up to you, as there are a lot of options. You can try non-heat techniques like braids and twisting your hair with rubber bands or by using a curling iron or hair straightener. Whichever works for you to achieve relaxed waves.
Cutting your medium length hair with some long subtle layers will give your hair more volume but keep the puffiness to a minimum. This hairstyle looks best with heart and oval face shapes, and with both fine and thick hair. However, thin hair doesn’t hold waves as well so that is something to keep in mind when choosing a new hairstyle.
When it comes to choosing the right bangs with a wavy hairstyle, it should really be determined based on your face shape and hair texture. If you have an oval or heart shaped face then blunt bangs would look vogue but if you have a round face then side-swept bangs will frame and slim down your face that is important with a wavy hairstyle and round face.
Graduated Lob Haircut with Bangs
Perhaps you have noticed lately that celebrities are chopping off their hair for shorter, chicer haircuts. One of the most common cut is the long bob – or the lob. It generally falls between the chin and the shoulders and it is the ultimate medium-length hairstyle. It fits all face shapes, works well with all hair textures, it’s healthy for your hair, and it’s low maintenance.
Adding layers will give your hair movement regardless if you wear it messy, straight and sleek, or curly. Of course your face shape should be considered. If you have a heart shaped face then chin length or longer is recommended. If you have a round face, then the lob is the perfect medium length hairstyle, but try to keep the length around the collarbone, this will elongate your neck and face. For square faces than keep the layers choppy and your hair parted to the side. Oval face-shaped woman can pull off any lob they desire.
Always consider bangs to complement a lob haircut. They will keep your hairstyle looking fresh and allow you to play around with products, styling, and accessories.
A medium length hairstyle is perfect for many women’s face shape, hair texture, and lifestyle. It’s lower maintenance than long hair but gives you more freedom to play with hairstyles. If you are worried that you might get bored with a medium-length hairstyle than free no more. These layered looks with bangs will keep your hairstyles exciting and you looking chic. Just remember that the key to medium length hairstyles is the right length and cut based on your face structure, facial features, and hair type.
